Aggies Offer Big Bruising FB Out Of Florida
"I'm pretty excited. I like the school a lot and I think they are going to use me the way that I want to be used. I've known Coach Kragthorpe since he was the coach at Louisville, my brother played for him."
"As I mentioned, my brother goes there. I went to a couple of games last year and he [Kragthorpe] offered me when he was still coaching there. He is a good coach and nice laidback guy."
Hunter rushed for about 700 yards and 8 touchdowns at Tampa Catholic High School (Fla.) in 2009. He was a 1,000 yard rusher his sophomore year and will be mainly used as a tailback his senior year. Joyer's strengths include short yardage runs and run blocking. Hunter has better hands than most kids his size and feels he can be utilized in the pass game. Joyer isn't that familiar with A&M but he intends to make it down to College Station this summer for a camp.
"I know they use bigger backs and they are rivals with Texas. I know a little bit about their quarterback--I watched him tear it up in the Texas game. I am extremely interested in A&M and I am looking forward to coming down to visit."
At the moment Hunter hold offers from A&M, Louisville, Stanford, Minnesota, UCONN, USF, and Georgia Southern. He intends to make a decision before the start of the season and he wants to make sure he picks a school that will utilize him in the backfield.
"'I'm pretty big so I know I'll be a fullback but I want to carry the ball a little bit more than a usual fullback does. Coach Kragthorpe said that's what they like to do. He said that they use a lot of big bruising backs, so it seems like I would fit in there and be someone they could use and make an impact."
Ideally Hunter would like to play fullback but he is familiar with the defensive side of the ball.
"I'm just looking for a place where I can be used because I know a lot of schools don't really use a fullback. I'm not sure if I want to switch to another position or not. I played a little linebacker last year, I had 8 sacks. I just want to contribute to a team. Location isn't a big deal."
A good education is important to Hunter.
"I'm looking for a good education because I am going to major in education. Texas A&M has a great education program from what I've heard. "
Joyer has plans to make the Florida camp on June 12th and he is also garnering attention from Boston College, and Georgia Tech. It's important to note that Joyer has some extraordinary strength. At the ripe age of 13 he broke the world record on the bench when he put up 375 pounds. He is now lifting close to 500 pound regularly.
